Churchill—The Gathering Storm

Ponder how the democracies are appeasing Islam and betraying Israel. Ponder how the democracies appeased Hitler and betrayed Czechoslovakia. Then read this head note from Churchill’s book, The Gathering Storm:

“It is my purpose … to show how easily the tragedy of the Second World War could have been prevented; how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous; how the structure and habits of democratic states … lack those elements of persistence and conviction which alone give security to humble masses; how even in matters of self-preservation, no policy is pursued for even ten or fifteen years at a time. We shall see how counsels of prudence and restraint may become the prime agents of mortal danger; how the middle course adopted from desires for safety and a quiet life may be found to lead direct to the bull’s-eye of disaster.”
